Sachet water price up 50 percent

Ghanaians are set to pay more for a bag of sachet water after the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers (NASPAWAP) announced an increase in price.

A statement from the Association said the increase in sachet water prices is due to “high production cost and distribution.”

To this end, a bag of sachet water will now cost GH¢3.50p when bought from all trucks and water depots.

Meanwhile, the price of a single sachet water, which was previously sold for GH¢0.20p, has also been increased to GH¢0.30p.

The revised price takes effect from Monday, 12th November, 2018,” the statement from NASPAWAP added.

Meanwhile, fuel prices went beyond ¢5 per litre during last pricing window, causing many interest groups to call on the government to step in and provide some cushion.

Already, the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers Ghana (COPEC) has called for “an immediate national dialogue” on constant fuel price increases.

In a press release issued on the recent fuel price increase, the Trades Union Congress (TUC) urged the government to scrap taxes driving up the price of the commodity, reminding the Nana Akufo-Addo government that it promised to abolish the taxes during the 2016 electioneering campaign.
